“These are extraordinary people who, due to their vocation and accomplishments, deserve to be recognized with the highest honors possible. And when you find this model of a person, who takes their work as an apostolate and accepts that mission, seeking its complete fulfilment, society can only applaud and acknowledge their meritorious work. Due to their extraordinary actions in the management of world peace, which we completely identify with, our honorees are considered exceptional people, examples for both present and future generations, which will have new paradigms to follow.”


The Higher Council of the University recognized Dr. Soto, Ambassador of the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace, in honor of his long work trajectory in favor of the defense of human rights and the wellbeing of the human family. During the event, the Chief Executive Officer of the Embassy of Activists, José Benjamín Pérez, was also awarded a Masters in World Peace Management.

“It is time to honor these two personalities, recognizing their devotion to others, their endless struggle, and their efforts and sacrifices in favor of humanity.”


—Jose Benjamin Perez, CEO of the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace—

“The 21st century has also been marked by violence, conflicts and wars in different parts of the world, but just like there are groups that cause those social disruptions, there is a bigger group of people who long for peace, who want to live in peace, and in order to achieve it, we must work for it. That is the great challenge of our current society; that is the flag of the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace, through which thousands and thousands of activists and volunteers are working for the ideal of humanity: to live in peace.”


“We request the presence of Dr. William Soto Santiago, to receive from our Rector, Professor Rosalba Cabrera Silva, his 2013 Honoris Causa medal and the title of Honoris Causa for his successful management of world peace.”

“In our hands, we have an essential tool for the prevention of genocide as a crime against humanity. An education that is centered on human values, constitutional principles, an education based on respect for the differences and the autonomy of peoples, where cultural and religious diversity, as well as the resolution of conflicts of interest, will allow us to strengthen the hope for a harmonic and peaceful coexistence.

Nelson Mandela was correct in saying: ‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.’

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Professors, that is the most powerful weapon: education.

Thank you very much.”



In Mexico, the Global Embassy of Activists for Peace has carried out the educational forums “Educating to Remember - The Holocaust: Paradigm of Genocide” in forty cities, gathering about fifteen thousand participants at a national level.

Because of this work, the Institution has been recognized through its Global Ambassador by various universities such as Universidad Tecnológica de Ciudad Juárez, in Chihuahua. 

“The highlight of this ceremony is the presentation of the award granted by Universidad Tecnológica de Ciudad Juárez to the Global Ambassador and Promoter of Peace, Dr. William Soto Santiago.”
